Make these super easy DIY cork sailboats to add to your summer beach decor. I used red, white, and blue and added them to my DIY Patriotic Basket that I made for the 4th of July.

This is a fun craft and great for those who love the beach as much as I do. I used cotton fabric and red and blue bakers twine I had in my craft bin. The blue ribbon came from the dollar store.

Feel free to add your own touches and nautical decoration like buttons, flags, or even paint the cork base.
